Planning Your Next Campaign? Start a Conversation.

Find Lead Gifts

Our methodology encourages stretch gifts and uncovers hidden donors.

Protect Viability

Our counsel keeps you on track towards an aspirational, yet attainable, goal.

Fuel Your Vision

A Winkler Group-led capital campaign is the first step in achieving your vision.


There is no one-size-fits-all approach to capital campaigns.

Nothing has the power to transform an organization or institution more than a capital campaign with strategy at its foundation. New facilities, more programs for students or communities, or an endowment that secures the future.


Your campaign will raise more money if you start with a Winkler Group-led campaign study.

We interview as many of your donors as possible—at no additional charge. Why? Because donor buy-in leads to investment. And bigger campaign goals.


So many of our clients tell us they’ve been underwhelmed by other consultants they’ve worked with. They notice an immediate difference once they partner with us.

Who We Serve

Are you right for the Winkler Group?

Our ideal client is looking for a partner, not just a coach or a cheerleader. They want a firm that tells them what they need to hear, not just what they want to hear.

Our most successful clients are convicted to move their campaign forward and are motivated to work alongside us. They value strategic counsel and are willing to accept help. If this sounds like you, let’s get started.
